i plan on doing this at some point in the near future on one of my cheap guitars and replacing it. do i need to take off the frets, the tuners and the nut? if its recommended to do so, why is that?
I used this process about a year ago and it worked well. - http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/removal.htm
I've heard it's very hard. Why not just refret it? And maybe oil it or something? If it's a set neck and you mess up it will be 10x worse.
I'm not sure why its considered hard to take off a fret board. I took an ebony one off a neck thru in about an hour using the project guitar method. No TS you dont need to remove the frets but nut and tuners yes.
